Popeye forearms? trimming at the wrist

Recommended Posts

ANOVOS kit here. trimmed the return edges at the wrist and maaaybe an eighth of an inch at the elbow end. problem is the wrist opening seems too big, about an inch and a half. of course I'll need clearance for the hand plates, but would it make much difference tapering off a bit to close the gap? I'm guessing the cover strip will aid in covering any minor imperfections...thoughts?

You put the gloves on last, so don't worry about fitting your handplate through it. fear not, overlap the wrist until the armor fits nice and snug on your forearm, while you can still slip you hand through the wrist hole, tape it together when you get a good fit,

then mark a line between the overlapped edges down the center of both. cut there and add the joining coverstrip over it. so tapering would be necessary in this instance.

Yes, make them fit snugly.

You put the gloves on last, they don't need to go through the forearms.

You can (and should) remove all of the return edges on the wrist openings, Forrest.  If (hopefully) you decide to go for EIB and Centurion, these will need to be removed anyway, so it's easier to do before you glue anything..
